Toluca odds: +140 – 40.0%

Draw odds: +280 – 24.0%

Colorado Rapids odds: +175 – 36.0%

We observe a 4.0% gap in the two teams’ win probabilities ahead of the game on the 1st of August. While Toluca are the expected winners with a solid 40.0% chance of scooping the three points, underestimating coach Fraser’s boys would be a mistake. Colorado Rapids have a 36.0% win probability, and despite our Under 0.5 Colorado Rapids Goals betting tip, we urge you to be cautious.

Toluca vs Colorado Rapids Lineups & Team News

Toluca

With a frightening 62.0% possession, Toluca deserved their 3-4 win over Nashville last week. Coach Gary Smith’s boys did everything they could to put a wrench in their rivals’ wheel, but few things seemed to work. We have faith that if coach Ambriz’s boys keep up the good work, our Toluca vs Colorado Rapids predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup – Volpi (GK), Mora, Huerta, Mosquera, Baeza, Ruiz, Dominguez, Meneses, Araujo, Lopez & Morales

Colorado Rapids

Coach Robin Fraser’s boys gave it their best effort, but their best didn’t cut it against Nashville. The game at GEODIS Park on the 24th of July ended positively for coach Gary Smith’s boys as the three points remained intact at Nashville’s shrine. We’re sure that more of the same is about to follow when the Rapids collide with Toluca on the 1st of August.

Predicted lineup – Yarbrough (GK), Gutman, Wilson, Maxso, Rosenberry, Ronan, Priso, Yapi, Bassett, Galvan & Harris

Player to Watch: Tiago Volpi

Despite conceding three against Nashville in Toluca’s opening Leagues Cup match last week, Tiago Volpi was definitely among the key players to watch. Goalkeeper-in-chief Volpi did well to deflect shots in the second half of the game, but he will most likely be remembered for scoring a goal!

This is something very unusual for a goalkeeper to do, but after Toluca were awarded a penalty in the 53rd minute of the game, it was Tiago Volpi who took it and scored. Volpi is a key part of our Toluca vs Colorado Rapids prediction and he should do just fine on Tuesday.
